Queen's bra-fitter is stripped of royal title

Share

Rigby & Peller, the prestigious lingerie company who fit all of Queen Elizabeth's underwear, has lost its royal warrant after the company's former owner wrote a tell-all book about royal bra fittings.

According to Kenton, Princess Diana would reportedly take home "posters showing models in lingerie and swimwear to give to princes William and Harry to display in their Eton studies", The Daily Telegraph reports.

The British royal family is facing some drama this week as Queen Elizabeth has symbolically denounced her former bra fitter (or "corsetiere", to be official).

The book came out in March of past year, but now Her Majesty has responded definitively (if not swiftly) by revoking the lingerie supplier's royal warrant.

The company - which has been supplying luxury lingerie since 1960 - added it was "not able to elaborate further on the cancellation out of respect for her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Warrant Holders Association".

Buckingham Palace has refused to be drawn into the matter, insisting it did not "comment on individual companies".

Mrs Kenton, from Bushey in Hertfordshire, had bought Rigby & Peller with her husband in 1982 for £20,000 before selling a majority stake in 2011 for £8m - although she remains on the board.

Rigby & Peller had held the title since 1960 but confirmed it was "deeply saddened" by the royal household warrants committee's decision to cancel it.

June Fenton wrote in A Storm in a D Cup how the corgis were present at fittings where the Queen was half dressed.

Mrs Kenton, 82, described the book as a "kind and gentle" story about her life and said there was nothing to "be upset about".

"Shall I tell you what I do?" she was quoted as saying. She even sent Buckingham Palace a copy when the book was published a year ago.

In the book she made several references to interactions with the Royal family, unaware of the rules governing the release of information on private meetings with them. "I have never, ever spoken about what I do there with her, or the Queen Mother or Princess Margaret".

But the BBC understood that Prince Philip was angered by allegations made by owner Mohamed al Fayed accusing the Duke of masterminding the 1997 auto crash in Paris that killed Diana, Princess of Wales and his son Dodi.
